Charts for Quick reference:

















1) put inner bearing in hub
2) slide large shim over axle all the way up to the back of the axle
3) slide axle/bone into hub carrier
4) slide small shim onto axle through hub carrier
5) push outter bearing into hub carrier

using that i'm able to put my normal male silverback gorilla wheel nut tightening job and there's no binding. in the pictures that come with the shims (the pic socket posted) it seems like they want you to slide both shims onto the axle before sliding the axle into the hub carrier and like i said, that doesn't work.



I've traditionally done the diff screw head on the left side (driver's side), but have since switched to the Right side (passenger side) regardless of transmission type (3 gear RM vs 3 gear MM and 4 gear MM).

Kdub (Kurt Wenger, former AE designer) had this to say on the matter:

The right rear is the way the AE manuals state (or used to state). It really shouldn't matter since you go around turns both left and right.

Roger that. I wouldn't say overlooked, it just isn't well connected to the discussion regarding the issue you experienced.

Reply with history, or some sort of reference helps resolve that since these threads all basically are read in linear form.

(IE: If I didn't include the quote, would anyone know what I'm even talking about?)

Okay so sorry if this has been asked before but I have just got my b6d. I want to know what hop ups should I be prioritizing, I run on a med-high bite clay track.

Current hop ups I have are

25g brass hinge pin holder
Exotek slipper eliminator
Kashima shocks
Lay down transmission
Aluminum bulkhead

the alum steering rack?

Default B6 loose set up

Does anyone have a good base setup for the B6 on a indoor sports hall floor with a bit of carpet, low traction.
Cheers

IIRC, the gullwing arms and tower are for high bite/carpet according to Brent, and meant to "smooth out" the steering. Which is RC speak for "less". 😄

I'd definitely try out flat arms and flat tower.

I have the correct tires for the track and have even tried the fast guys tires to make sure. It is great mid to exit but still has a lot of push.

I can't post the link to the setup but it is the Kurt wenger ocrc 9/21.
The only change I made is the rear shocks in the middle hole on the tower.
Any ideas of what to try next?
That's a lot of optional parts on that setup. Do you have all of them? If not, it's hard to compare apples to apples on that. If you do have everything that's listed on that setup, I have to agree, your diff has to be too tight, because I can't see what would cause your car to push on exit with that setup.

Sounds like he is talking about corner entry to me not exit according to his posts. I would say add 1 to 2mm of washer under the steering ballstud to change the ackerman and maybe make sure you have a total of 30 degrees front kickup. The more kickup you have the usually the better on corner entry. Also, using part of a published setup is not a good thing. It is better to work up your own setup as your track is probably different. If you cant make that setup work I would suggest returning to the kit setup and restarting from there.

My b6 jumps nose high even with brakes punched when I leave the face of the jump. Should I add that 36g steel weight under the servo or use the 30g front brass bulkhead?

Morning/Afternoon/Evening everyone!
With the upcoming Outdoor Reedy Race Of Champions at HRH in a couple weeks, a fair chunk of the AE AUS team are coming over to have some fun. Outdoor low to medium grip is the surface we race on pretty much all year round. We've worked really hard on developing the B6d over the last few months since it's release.

In preparation for the Reedy race I have done a blog/Aussie build on a B6d, with a combination of photos, videos and in depth descriptions.

Please feel free to hit me up if you have any questions, and hopefully I'll get to meet some of you guys over there.

That sounds unusual. What radio are you using?
